Coventry Cathedral ruins benefit from £100,000 donation for restoration
American Express has donated $150,000 to help preserve the ruins of Coventry's old cathedral.
The finance company has promised the money - about £100,000 - after an appeal for more than £2 million was launched last year when a large crack appeared in one of the walls.
The cathedral is on the World Monuments Fund 2012 Watch List, a register of buildings worthy of preservation.
Funds will help restore the ruins and the original stained glass windows.
